Ian Somerhalder is extra playful in this interview with Zap2it, dodging questions about the sire bond and Damon and Elena’s relationship. He does have some insight into Elena’s state of mind, however, and talks a little about Rebekah and that character’s similarities to Damon. Ian also shares some of the truest words ever spoken about Mystic Falls:
“Can they sustain a relationship? Or — not a relationship, they are in a relationship, but can they sustain a romance? It’s hard to sustain anything in Mystic Falls, except, like, a drinking habit. Those seem to be pretty sustainable,” he teases.
As the countdown ticks ever closer to Thursday, the CW has released another webclip featuring Damon and Klaus for Bring It On (EP416), courtesy of TV Guide!
We know Vaughn (guest star Charlie Bewley) will play a big role in this week’s new episode, Down the Rabbit Hole (EP414). In this week’s Vampire Diaries Bite, TV Guide talks to Ian Somerhalder about whether Vaughn will pose a threat to Damon in particular. And . . . looks like yes:
“Damon would be an extremely difficult man to get tied up to a tree, unless you’re Elena or some hot sorority girl who is compelled to do so. So the fact that he’s there means Vaughn knows what he’s doing.”
In this week’s Vampire Diaries Bite, TV Guide talks to Ian Somerhalder about whether he thinks Elena is in love with Damon and whether he’d be able to embrace that love.
“Even as dumb and crazy as Damon can be, it’s like, ‘ouch fire hot, ouch fire hot, ouch fire hot.’ I would hope the man would take a break. Hell, people get burned over a six-month relationship and take a year to heal. If you got screwed over for 150 years, you can imagine how that carries forward.”
It’s February sweeps time again, and TV line have the latest Vampire Diaries poster from the CW. Okay, so we know our show isn’t all sunshine, rainbows and unicorns, but sweeps posters don’t usually leave fans so worried. “Give him enough rope…” Let’s just hope that’s figurative and not literal.
Oh, hey, it’s Friday, and that means it’s time for a webclip! Feast your eyes upon this sneak peek from next week’s episode, Into the Wild (EP413).
